SCHOOLS – Burnham On Sea Rugby Festival

SCHOOLS – Burnham On Sea Rugby Festival

Over the May bank holiday, LWTL hosted their 2nd Annual Junior Rugby Festival in Burnham. A fun filled tournament that caters for U7s right through to U13s, with 77 squads competing from 10 different clubs.  Hosted at Burnham-on-Sea Rugby Club, we have the chance to mark out 14 pitches, where the sidelines are jam packed with supporting parents, siblings and teammates.

In order for us to provide a safe environment, we rely on the Nottingham, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire Rugby Referees along with the team of medics from the Local Medical Services.

Staff and Volunteers work together in providing an action-packed weekend and it is such a privilege to see all the children and adults having such a great time both on and off the pitch.

Away from the rugby, clubs are accommodated in nearby Holiday Resorts providing a platform for socialising, whether it be on the beach, open grass areas, karaoke stage or the ever so popular amusements.

No tournament ends without awards, following the 5 key principles of rugby – teamwork, respect, enjoyment, sportsmanship and discipline. These are awarded by our special guest, who this year, was Aaron Wainwright, Welsh International who plays number eight. Our celebrity guest always provides so much excitement with everyone wanting their picture taken and souvenir signed.

We look forward to all that Burnham 2025 has to bring!
